How does the admissions process work?

1

Choose a program

 

Choose in time at which Sciences Po campus you would like to study, and if you want to undertake a Dual Degree. Our tutors will help you understand which program is most in line with your passions, attitudes and personal preferences. The offer is really wide, and we recommend starting this process possibly in the summer before the final year of high school.

 

2

If you choose a Dual Degree: complete the application

If you want to study two years at Sciences Po and two years at another university to obtain two degrees, you will need to follow a specific admission procedure based on the partner university you choose. You may need to take exams such as SAT, IELTS / TOEFL, write cover and motivational letters, and submit CVs and grades. At every step, Valdo Academics tutors will guide and support you.

 

3

If you choose a Sciences Po bachelor's: prepare all needed materials 

If you prefer to study the Sciences Po bachelor's, which includes two years at a thematic multicultural campus in France and one year of an exchange abroad, you will submit your application directly to Sciences Po via its online platform. The Undergraduate College’s unified admissions procedure is made up of four evaluations, each of which is marked out of 20. These evaluations are the same for all Sciences Po undergraduate applicants:

Are you interested in both a Dual Degree and the Sciences Po course? Don't worry, you can apply to both of them by indicating the option you prefer, thus leaving more doors open and the possibility to choose, if you should be admitted to both programs.

4

Get ready for interviews 

The final step of the Sciences Po admission process is an oral interview. The interview is both academic and aptitude-based, but mostly focuses on your critical thinking skills. It starts with a candidate presentation, followed by an analytical commentary on an image, and a final talk on the candidate’s background, motivations, intellectual ambitions for Sciences Po.

Why image analysis? Visual messages have their own language and always serve a purpose: to communicate, convince, persuade, critique.

At Valdo Academics, we can help you prepare for both this and the Dual Degree Admission Interview.
